SOAP - Students Organized Agains Pollution

Our Spotlight Project: SOAP

SOAP (Students Organizing Against Pollution) is a software development project that tests our hypothesis that collaborations between computer science students, non-CS students and a community partner are an effective way to boost computational thinking

The goal of the SOAP project is to create an online resource that provides more accurate, accessible and comprehensive information about neighborhood-level environmental conditions in Trenton, New Jersey than is currently available through local state and federal databases.

How to Get involved with CABECT

We are looking for educators and computer science and computing-dependent fields interested in new models for interdisciplinary collaboration and community engaged learning.
